Making the best of Avery's yogurt strike
Avery is usually up for yogurt at almost every meal, her favorite being Dora yogurt. She has no idea who Dora is, but she seems to like the texture. Since it was not on sale (and I didn't have a coupon for it) last week, we bought a marked-down Yo Baby yogurt instead. It sounded very promising and parent-approved, organic & made with whole milk, but when we opened the first container, the texture looked disgusting. We gave it to Avery anyway, but she took one lick and made a horrible face. Not one to waste much, I decided to make yogurt pops, combining the rejected yogurt and bananas. I simply put them in a little food processor, took them for a short spin, froze them in Popsicle molds, and voila: Avery's yogurt strike was over! You can tell she didn't enjoy them at all.
